Game night has been a sacred ritual for centuries. Now I’m not sure if it’s been for centuries because I’m not that old, however, I know the game night has been around for quite some time. In any case, game night is a ritual that many people partake in for every football season, basketball season or any other seasonal sport that people are totally and completely obsessed with. For every game night, there has to be the appropriate food and beverage combination. It’s important that the food coordinates with the event. Therefore, if you’re on a diet, you can forget about it.
What about some good old nachos?
Nachos are so versatile and quite delicious. If you’re trying to watch your waistline, this might not be the food for you. Nonetheless, the versatility of nachos makes them the perfect game night snack. With tortilla chips combined with cheese, guacamole, sour cream, meat and any other food item you can imagine, you’re able to create a delicious snack in minutes.
Stovetop popcorn for the big game day.
Popcorn is the go-to snack for movies, parties and game nights. Some people prefer the microwave method, but there’s nothing like good old-fashioned stovetop popcorn. This snack can be as basic or elaborate as you choose. It’s delicious and it is easy to clean up when you and your guest spill it all over the couch. There’s a peace of mind in knowing you can easily clean up a mess that was created in the heat of the moment when your favorite wide receiver goes down the field for a Hail Mary pass.
Deli sandwiches are a great snack for game night because they’re delicious, easy to make and you really don’t have to put too much thought into making them. A few slices of cheese and deli meats along with some lettuce, tomato and onions and you’re all set. If you’re like me, no deli sandwich is complete without a bag of chips.
Delivery or takeout.
Pizza is another snack that is great for game night events. If you want to cheat, order it. Since this is a blog about homemade snacks, I guess we’ll follow the rules this one time. Luckily, grocery stores have pre-made dough which makes it easy for you to customize your pizzas the way you want it. You can top your pizza with anything the mind can imagine. From extra cheese and pepperoni to pineapples and gummy bears, the sky’s the limit.
Who’s up for a beer?
Now I know beer is not technically a snack, however, no game night is complete without it. You would be the laughing stock of your friends and family if you did not serve beer at game night, so drink up.
Game night is a ritual that is not to be messed with. Prior to any game night, it is important that you plan all events and activities methodically and carefully to ensure minimal interruption in the game festivities and your game night snacks.
